On Friday, Johnny Manziel called into the “Dan Patrick Show.” Manziel offered up a lot of interesting information about his past year since winning the Heisman. However, the most interesting part of the interview was Johnny Football’s relationship with LeBron James.
When asked by Patrick who, outside of his immediate family, helped Manziel the most in dealing with his newfound stardom, he responded with James. He said that James would text him everyday to offer words of encouragement and advice.
Though James never attended college, he could relate to the attacks on Manziel by the media. After joining the Miami Heat, LeBron was treated like a public pariah for perceivably abandoning his hometown team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The past year and a half have been a wild ride for Manziel, as he went from a relative unknown to a supernova, with LeBron James and Drake on speed dial.
Below is the interview in its entirety.
